It’s a princess!


Last night Sweden’s crown princess Victoria had her first child, a baby girl. This is a huge deal, since this baby will grow up to become our next queen! Most Swedes have eaten princess cake today to celebrate this important date.

On another note, I’ve got this really nice calendar as a gift. I like the look and feel of it, and it’s of perfect size. The cover is leather and the pages are gold. But I’ve never used one of these before, and I’m not sure I’ll remember to fill it in as needed. It wouldn’t be of much use if I don’t.
Do you use these notebooks? I’ve always wanted one, but now that I have it I’m not sure I need it.

    I rarely use them, which is a shame b/c there are some gorgeous ones out there. I had a professor in university that used old agendas as notepads…I thought that was a really neat way to save paper (and money!).

      My mum is a journalist and she does the same! But she normally uses agendas of a larger size. This one is so neat and cute, and has a wonderful leather cover, and I’d really need to be more organized, but!..

    I love my Moleskine. Its pricey (approx. 30 dollars in Canada) but thats what motivates it to use it! I love how beautiful and professional it looks at the same time! The quality of the paper and leather is always appreciated and is a daily treat for me. I buy it for my dad for Christmas every year as well.

      I see what you mean! This one is one of the most pricey agendas I’ve seen, so I can try to find some motivation in that! I kind of with it was a regular notebook, though:)

    So lovely, I especially like the golden pages. I buy a calendar every year and I do use it first 5 months or so if I am in the good mood. ^ ^ But after some time I just find it easier to remember things. Still it is a lovely feeling to take a pretty notebook out of your bag and show off how smart and organized I am. :D

    ps. One thing it helps with are the birthdays and exam dates.

    I got one for Christmas. For the first few weeks it was difficult to remember to write things down, but now I couldn’t survive without it! I’m in film school and am constantly holding auditions, filming, or meeting with other students about filming and I would never be able to keep track of it all on my own. Then when you add homework for other classes into the mix…gosh! I love my calendar book. :)

    I love princess cakes! I’m tempted to try and make one in celebration even though my grandfather is Danish, not Swedish, I still am happy for fellow Scandinavians!

    I buy myself planners and notebooks constantly, but I always seems to end up right back to my Moleskine. I have the unlined, large soft back one. I love it.

    Please don’t get me wrong -because I don’t mean to offen you in ay way- but, how does it feel like living in a monarchy?

    I have one by Moleskine and absolutely love it! It’s such a useful thing during the semester and on holiday I just write notes there or quotes from different books, my to-dos, whatever!

    Congrats on the baby princess! It’s so weird to read happy posts on a new born princess next to posts about our Prince (Friso) who is extremely sick. I guess that’s how life goes. I’m very curious to find out what the princess’s name will be!

    It was my birthday yesterday. Fun that I get to share my special day with a Princess and the future Queen of Sweden, no less. :)

    Rather than using it to write down ‘to do’ items, how about using it to write down ‘deep thoughts’ or ideas. It seems to be the perfect size to write down these little relevations that pop up occasionally and what better place to keep them than a leatherbound collection of gold edged paper. It’s perfect!
